Rotary Golf Tourney
If you need a reminder that Spring will find its way to the mountains, mark this on your calendar – the 27th annual Highlands Rotary Golf Tournament, slated for Monday, May 2 at Highlands Country Club.
Make your reservations now by contacting Tournament Chair Dr. Carter Davis at (828) 526-3008, Slocum Howland at (828) 526-9097 or via e-mail at [email protected]. You may also submit your registration via U.S. Mail at Carter Davis, Rotary Golf 2016, P.O. Box 1741, Highlands, N.C. 28741.
Registration is at 10:00 A.M. with a shotgun start at 11:30 A.M. Proceeds from this event allow the Rotary Club to support their many community charitable projects throughout the year.
You’ll be joined by the young men and women of the Highlands School Golf Team. You’ll also get to meet the new K 9 member of the Highlands Police Department. Foursome teams will play a four-person scramble or captain’s choice.
The Donald Ross-designed course was once the showcase for golf legend Bobby Jones. Mulligans can be purchased for $5 each. Collect a fabulous prize when you get “closest to the pin” or have the longest drive. Enjoy a box lunch in your cart. At the end of an exciting day, you and your guest can savor the spotlight during the Awards Ceremony while you enjoy a tasty buffet at 5:30 P.M. There’ll also be a Putting Contest at 5:00 P.M.
Throughout the years, the tournament has raised more than $100,000 to support the many community projects like the Student Foreign Exchange Program, the Literacy Council, local Boy Scout Troop, the Peggy Crosby Center, Hudson Library, and so much more. Registration for each player is $175. Don’t delay – course capacity means that there is only space for 30 4-person teams. If you are not able to play, but would like to support the Rotary Club with a whole or corporate sponsorship, contact Dr. Davis.
Spectators are welcome to follow the action. They may also enjoy the Awards Presentation and buffet for only $25. There’s no better way to promote your business and support our community than a fun game of golf at the Rotary Tournament.
